Of course, the other point that is possible that none of us have really discussed: the Rangers have a history of letting guys go when those guys no longer want to be a part of the organization. So, it's possible one or both guys requested to be waived to see if they'd catch on elsewhere (and their agents may well have had indications to this effect from other teams).

Or both of these moves could be for contract clearing. Or they both could have been because they legitimately want(ed) to send the guys down to play in HFD (doesn't make sense in the Halpern case IMO). Or it could be some combination of the above.

Either way, glad to see Bickel gone. Torts used him too much (and then used him poorly) when he was available to him.

Now take Boyle away from him.
Id like to think theyre up to something for a real shakeup, but its past noon and we havent heard if Halpern has been picked up, and Im pretty sure there will be no interest in Bickel - so, while they might be trying to clear contracts, I dont know if its going so well.
